attorney are talking about the flaws of obama care, is it these two doouling scripts this we hear every day up to the midterm election? >> i think so. i think obama care is a mess. i voted to repeal it and sent down there to try to stop. it and it is implemented porly and it is not about a website but a plan that is taking away a choice. and cutting half a trillion from medicare and a host of things that are wrong with it. i find it hypocriticical that you have staffers and senators and congressman with special perks. they have in house concierge services that allow for assistance and unlike many people in the private sector who are affected and it is only just begun as brit said himself. >> 5 million people received cancellation letters. they are angry and chances are they will not vote democratic. a year from now millions more will sign up. and maybe millions more as the administration is hoping? . and maybe they will cancel each other out and do the republicans need to articulate a real plan? do they need to come up with a plan that replaces the affordable care act? >> there are plans. w
you talked about with president obama today >> well, we value extremely to the help that the u.s. has given us. it has been extremely useful. not because of the quantity because when you add up what colombia has given us versus what we have had to invest ourselves, it's a very small percentage. the quality of that help in terms of intelligence, of practical ways to be more if in for example the fight against drug trafficking has been very useful but that is the knowledge that we have already acquired and as i mentioned it's the knowledge that we are sharing with other countries and in a way what we are doing with the u.s. is lowering the costs and expanding and strengthening the results through you would say a proxy procedure whereby colombia is providing this help with the help of the u.s. and in that case you could make the resources much more efficient. >> is the u.s. going in the right direction by evolving from security aide to economic development help then what more should the u.s. be doing? >> you well i think yes it's going in the right direction but they should never ignore
the train to slow down if it was going too fast. >>> president obama is said to make some comments about his health care law at a white house youth event today. it's the second-straight day he will be talking about obama care. as abc's karen travers tells us, that's by design. good morning, karen. >> reporter: good morning, john. good morning, diana. president obama highlighted the progress at healthcare.gov. but once again, he reminded americans that the health care law is not just a website. and he had a strong message for republicans. he said the health care law is here to stay. >> my main message today is we're not going back. after just the first month, despite all of the problems in the rollout, about 500,000 people across the country are poised to gain health care coverage threw marketplaces and medicaid beginning on january 1st. >> reporter: but the white house says the problems are almost fixed. over the next three weeks they'll make a big push to get people enrolled so they have health insurance by january 1st. john and diana? >> karen, thank you. >>> now, to a breaking story from
at >>> coming up on "consider this," president obama gives a talk on the economy. why is the man who helped get bin laden behind bars without much hope of getting out. the unique for animal rights, is the move to get chimpanzees personhood status going too far. >> should you think twice before going to a game? we will see you at the top of the hour. >> welcome back. here at the morseem, the work of journalists is chronicled and honored in a number you have visits including one which is a tribute to journalists who have fallen while pursuing their stories. one whose short life has inspired creative work, dan eldon who was raised in kenya. he was all of that, brave and bold and lost in a gruesome assault 20 years ago. then he was just 22. and then, eldon was a photo journalist documenting somalia as things spun out of control. on july 12th, 1993, filing a violent assault, protesters in the streets turned on dan and three colleagues working there. they were beaten and stoned to death. in the two deck it's a since that day, dan's mother, cathy, and his sister, set out to preserve the legacy of his
to put it. >> president obama talking about it the other day. >> but the fact is the situation's gotten worse in the last three years. more than 90% of the income increases over the past three years have gone to the top 1%. so it's possible that you have -- look, these are great numbers. but the fact is that a lot of people are not feeling it, even if they have a job. so i don't think that it's just the jobless rate that people look at, because only jobless rate that counts is the one in your household. a lot of people may have a job, but it's not enough of a job, or it doesn't pay enough, or it's only part-time, whatever it is, and that's why you see the differential between, hey, look, the jobless rate is going down, and people going, i think we're on the wrong track. >> candy crowley, the brilliant candy crowley, thank you for joining me. tune in for stre"state of the u" at 9:00 in the morning. >> here's breaking news we have to get to now. as we reported a couple minutes ago, as many as six people taken to a hospital in mexico for radiation poisoning. think of the timing here becaus

, and with that policy, we have to find the resources to finance those projects. >> in your talks with president obama today, did he give support for the peace talks with farc? >> definitely, yes, and i appreciate that very much. he has been supporting the peace prosays. he was one of the first ones to know about the peace process when there was a secret and nobody knew about them. i shared that secret with him when he went to colombia during the head of summit, and the whole government is extremely sportive of the peace process. >> today, the farc call for an international conference to incomes the u.s. and europe. what is your reaction to the request? >> the discussion on the fight and war against drugs have been on the agenda for a long time. as a matter of fact, we put this on the agenda in the summit, which approved a mandate to the oes, discussing with the oes today about this spesk issue. we made a big exercise and analysis and scenarios that happened. they take different actions. these scenarios should be used as an input for worldwide discussion on this issue. the question is are we doing the

:15 eastern today here on c-span2, senate judiciary committee chair patrick leahy from vermont to talk about the obama administration's policy on human rights as was future congressional action. he will appear at the second annual human rights summit hosted by the group human rights first. >> friday on c-span "washington journal" looks at the mission and role of the national institutes of health. starting live at 730 am eastern. >> all with your calls and comments live on c-span. >> as you walk in the our tables out in front with lots of pamphlets, prior to entering the country. the pamphlets are how the government is trying to take away your right to own guns, the government is doing this and obama is doing that and obamacare's table. so those with the kind i wanted to talk to because those with guys with the leaflets, the ideas. so i said -- i said i'm an academic. i'm research and funding research on these organizations t,these ideas and trying to understand the guys. and i study men who believe this stuff. and a bunch of them looked at me suspiciously and said, so to ask questions but an
we talk. this is interesting. because the obama administration put a lot of pressure on prime minister netanyahu of israel he said, you, mr. prime minister, have to agree to release over 1,000 murderous thugs, including murderers who murdered an american, before the palestinians will come to the table to negotiate with you on the israeli-palestinian conflict. that was our president who put pressure on the prime minister. you've got to release thugs in order to negotiate. we would put that kind of pressure on israel and we wouldn't put that kind of pressure on iran? you see, that's why, mr. speaker, i ask the question -- did the negotiators forget which nation they were negotiating for? because it looks to me like the score is pretty clear. united states zero, iran made out on the deal. the sad thing about that final score, and let's hope it's not the final score, is that again, the hinge of history turns. and if you have an iran with a nuclear weapon, it won't be just iran. you will explode proliferation, saudi arabia will have a nuclear weapon, egypt will have a nuclear weapo
, even though the obama administration had talked about how much al-qaeda had been dismantled since the death of bin lad en, do americans need to worry now that al-qaeda does seem to be gaining ground in the middle east? >> i think the americans ought to be very concerned about the increasing capability. while the u.s. government has started to parse their words, saying we only met core al-qaeda in pakistan and afghanistan, the fact is that the franchisees, the smaller groups of al-qaeda represent a clear and present danger not only to the countries and governments in the middle east but also that of the united states. >> general, thank you. >> commuter trains will roll again today on a normal schedule past the reopened stop in the bronx, the scene of sunday's fatal derailment in new york city. the train to derailed featured a system that can warn the engineer of a potential accident and apply the brakes, but the system was not in the front cab where william rockefeller was at the controls. it was installed in the locomotive, which was pushing the train from the back. >> highly radi
this is a distraction from the real issue, which is the failure of obama care. the president would rather be talking about moral issues than the flawed rollout of his health care website. >> republicans must know or feel this issue is not good for them? >> i think it's more subtle. the president is trying to take the health care law and put it in the larger argument for what he wants to get done. it's a legacy item, a priority. the republicans are content to criticize the president on more americans being on food stamps. the question is what do you do about it? that's where the gap is fundamentally in washington today. >> i was trying to get the hash tag do better going. i would argue republicans have a big interest in this. cultivating business and job production here is much an agenda item on their platform as it is for democrats. >> it is. there's an interesting question. what is the republican agenda for poverty and inequality. this republican will cite people like teddy roosevelt. especially when it comes from the economy, from a different progressive era, 100 years ago. what's interesting is w
talking about the bush tax cuts. the rich are getting richer and poorer. are getter barack obama gets elected, the richer, the tting poor keep getting poorer. ack to 1973, the average wage for the american male has gone down in real dollars every 1973. year since a lot of that has to do with the act that we're more productive than ever, we have an i.t. revolution. if aw a statistic that said american factories were operating the same level of 1993, 20n they were in million to 30 million more be working today. how do we -- how do we alleviate the suffering d that so many working class americans. middle class americans feel they're being left behind getting rich do keep richer, the poor keep getting america, butjust in in the entire west. >> the same things that the said were the entirely different message than what came from the nominee in race.12 there's no doubt about that. two problems. hat alex said about marketing is right too. the actual substance was wrong here. republicans had not been able to get past a lot of his 1980, the last truly successful president. ut in 2016, the ele
have president obama but pope francis talk about is a living wage. set the minimum wage at a level that people can survive on. you have states already emulating what a lot of these workers are talking about. seattle recently raised their minimum wage to $15 an hour. california $10 an hour. i think people are understanding because frankly those strains end up getting pushed to the states. states have to subsidize those same people. >> very quickly, wouldn't a business get a lot out of the henry ford model? unilaterally saying we're going to pay more than market price for our employees and charge you more and wouldn't that be like a huge pr for a business? >> if a business could do that, if a business could do that they would have done it already. they wouldn't need the federal government telling them to do that. it's instrubtive the examples we're hearing, fast food strikes, airport in seatle, these are union-backed campaigns to try to create a discussion, try to demonize large companies but at the end of the day all they're doing is restricting opportunities for sort of the people
. and the president very interestingly at one point, brooke, talked about the term obama care. people in washington have been saying the president hasn't been using the word obama care as much lately. what's the deal with that? the president used it during this address to younger folk s here at the white house. here's what the president had to say. >> i know people call this law obama care. and that's okay. because i do care. and i do. i care about you. i care about families. i care about americans. but no matter how much i care, the truth is that for your friends and your family, the most important source of information is not going to be me. it's going to be you. they are going to trust you. >> so a little bit of the president picking himself up, dusting himself off from that disast rr rollout of healthcare.gov. no briefing here at the white house today, but on a conference call with reporters, officials with the administration, they were talking about how they also believe that enrollment is picking up, brooke. that is really the best news that this white house can be hoping for right now, for a

, toronto mayor, addiction has landed him a job in the united states. [ ♪ music ] >>> president obama had a lot to say about economic inequality. perhaps it was an attempt to divert attention from the rollout from his health care law. he struck a nerve when he talked about the middle class and how many americans are learning. we'll take a look at this with an american who knows what it's like to live that way. first, mike viqueira at the white house >> the facts are beyond dispute. the government sought to highlight the gap between the rich and poof. he was up to two themes. these are themes struck throughout the presidency, first and second term. he talked about the gap between rich and poor and talking about trying to raise the minimum wage. he got behind that, backing a height or legislation and congress that's $0.10 an hour. many states are moving on their own. the president deniably is trying to shore up a political base after a rocky rollout of healthcare.gov. democrats are dispirited. this is the latest in a series of event where the president spoke to the base and what he said was
